BIPR:  Nurturing Minds, Changing Lives

Through our counseling, education, and training programs, we do change lives.  Our dedication to staying abreast of scientific studies in brain imaging and proven techniques helps us understand how the brain works, and therefore what interventions are the most likely to help.  Our early childhood programs and parent education programs work to prevent problems and intervene early.  Our counseling programs aid struggling individuals to help them become strong, healthy, productive family and community members.

Our expertise is in Trauma (including PTSD)  and Attachment though we can help with a number of different problems including depression, anxiety, ADHD, behavioral problems in children, relationship problems, couples issues, and many more.

BIPR offers low fee, affordable psychotherapy and Mental Health Services to children, adolescents, adults, families and couples through its effective, highly respected counseling program. BIPR uses a sliding fee scale based on a person’s ability to pay.

Some children go from zero-to-sixty in a matter of seconds; one minute they will be fine and the next they will be raging at a parent, a teacher, or a sibling.  This presentation will help parents understand how the nervous system of a highly reactive child is different and learn strategies so that caregivers are no longer walking on eggshells.

December:  No class in December

 


 Psychobabble… A Monthly Salon Series for Mental Health Professionals

sofa-row-smBoulder has a wealth of dedicated, highly knowledgeable mental health practitioners. Psychobabble provides opportunities for colleagues to gather in a less formal setting, socialize, network, promote your practices, and learn from one another while enjoying some wine and cheese on a late Friday afternoon.

Every month we spend the first half-hour socializing informally, then there is a one-hour presentation by a local Mental Health Professional, followed by a half-hour for Q&A and open discussion.

We so very much look forward to this monthly opportunity for collaborating and increasing our sense of professional community, especially given the private nature of the work that we do!

These meetings will take place on the 3rd Friday of each month from 4 – 6 PM.

RSVP:
We ask you to please RSVP for this event so that we will know how many to expect and provide refreshments for. RSVP for the upcoming Psychobabble on the right-hand side of this screen.

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you were to pass away? While it may be a grim thought, it’s something that may have caused you to become interested in finding out more about life insurance. Because you can never predict what will happen in the future, having life insurance gives you the opportunity to make sure your family won’t have to go through hard times if you were to pass away.

If you’re concerned that your family would struggle financially if you weren’t around, life insurance is a great means of protection, and you can decide who will receive that insurance money if something did happen. Before you start working out all the details, such as which family members you’ll add to the life insurance policy, you can ask for a price quote. While the exact amount you pay monthly will depend on several different factors, which you can discuss with the Aspect Insurance Company directly, the company makes sure to offer a reasonable and affordable solution for all.

Once you’ve chosen the ideal life insurance policy, discussed the cost, and have agreed to the terms, you may instantly feel relieved knowing your family will have a safety net. The life insurance can cover the cost of a funeral, along with additional expenses and the cost of living for children, a spouse, or anyone else who you would like to add to the policy. Without life insurance, your family isn’t protected, and you can’t guarantee that they won’t struggle without you. Because you love them, obtaining life insurance is a smart decision to make.
